> hi taco---
> I just ran into some lualatex problems with a font from macos Fontbook.
> suggestion: may I suggest improving the error messages with respect to
> fonts? if a font is not found, print out *where* luatex was looking
> for the font ("montserrat not found in /usr/...; /opt/..."). [maybe
> also add the most similarly named font if one exists.] ulrike also
> suggested that maybe the font was damaged, although it worked well
> with other apps. in any case, if this could be the reason, perhaps
> add a different kind of error message than "font not found."
